One of my clients recently been tested randomly with a fresh import. Found asbestos residue in brake pads.....fined $1200.

Did the $1,200 include the cost of the testing?
Cheers,

It is real and is happening, just nowhere near the level of the hype/hysteria that's been going around.  Hit rate seems to be pretty low, but if you're unlucky you can get caught out.

That said, I've brought in 2 cars in the last 12 months and no dramas.
Cheers,
Brian
